The old Glenthorne Manor on Barracks Road in Belize City
Another colonial building gone. I knew that Winnel Grant Borg had a guest house here. Tapa Grant was a judge...
I believe this is the house that the Zabanehs lived in before they moved to Dangriga. The old man Zabaneh may have passed away, but I am sure one or two of the sons are still in Dangriga. One probably own Maya Airlines.
It was used as a guest house for a while in the 1990s. Mr Nick Pollard and his family lived in that house back in the early 70s for some good years.
When I attended 6th Form (1969-71) my Peace Corp Lit. teacher & her husband, a science teacher, lived on 2nd floor; Ms. Grant lived on 3rd. floor. i use to go play on her Piano...History! and my first dog bite..oh my...
Use to work for ms.Grant as a handyman at this guess house along with James like in the 90s.
My wife was born there from 1982 they were the 4 little girls running all over that house,Mrs. Grant was like a grandmother for them.
I grew up on Hydes Lane just about 5 or so houses from the Glenthorne Manor I remember it being a two story building until the house underwent major refurbishing and a third floor being added sometime in the early 80s thereabouts
